An episode of Kate Smith's daytime variety series. Apart from her, this episode also features a burlesque/vaudeville dog act, an interview with a politician about juvenile delinquency, and a mini-musical production, plus original commercials. Since this is a daytime series for the housewives, the production values are a bit bare.

An episode of "The Betty White Show". Betty is great, the episode is very poor. But another episode on IA is quite good. May have been an off-episode. Still a couple worthwhile moments though.

|The Garry Moore Show - Misc 1955 Episode|
I thought I had already uploaded this, but I can't find it. I don't know if this is a complete episode or not, but here's 43 minutes of "The Garry Moore Show" from 1955, featuring original commercials for products like Lux dishwashing liquid, Franco-American canned foods, and Sta-Flo liquid starch. A delightful daytime series with comedy, music, and talk. Certainly much better than that sleeping-pill show hosted by that lipton-tea addict.
